Nothing is free on Webcam.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, and I’ve heard it a thousand times before. “The best things in life are free.” In real life? Maybe. (although I’m going to come in with a strong #debatable). In Cam life? NOTHING IS FREE.
Let’s just get all of the silly questions out of the way now, so we can delve into the truth of the subject.
“What about smiles?” … While it’s true that smiles may not be paid for with cash, tokens or gold (Although it might work if you DO charge for it) they are most certainly paid for with your soul that will inevitably be sucked out piece by excruciating piece from dealing with the gigantic F*$% Boys that you have to deal with on a daily basis. (“Ass BB.. Open tits BB.. Show me a preview and then Private BB)… but I digress.
“If I tease for free then maybe they will pay for it!” Nope. No. NOOOOO. Don’t fall into this trap, beauties. There is so much out there for you, and money is at the head of the pack. Would you ask a clothing store to give you a free shirt so you could test it out before you buy it? How about asking a restaurant if you could try a small version of their entrée dish for free? Pretty sure they would laugh in your face and walk away. At least, that’s what I would do.. In fact, it IS what I do anytime some entitled jerk comes into my cam room and tries to get the milk for free. Repeat after me, ladies and gents. “NO, the cow is NOT for sale and the milk is NEVER free.”
The fact of the matter is that you are providing a luxury service. The key word to remember there is LUXURY. If you are out of their price range than you are also out of their league. (Awe..can’t afford a show? Better start saving up to give yourself a nice big birthday gift!)
Here’s what you do. Sit down, write out a list of what you know you will get asked for and then price out what you’re comfortable charging for each individual thing. Don’t second guess yourself!! If you want to charge high, charge high! This ain’t Walmart, and you don’t need to roll back your prices. The way I see it, it’s better to start your prices higher and lower them if you need, rather than setting the bar low and having to explain to people why your prices are being raised.
Blocking them when they continue to try and get it for free? Priceless.
You get the idea. Don’t sell yourself short! If you have people trying to get things for free than you either convert them into a paying customer or you cut the gigantic, pathetic freeloading cord that is their life. (#ByeFelicia)
Have I drilled that into your head enough?
So here comes the other side of things. Some people that you’re going to encounter like to sip on that haterade that is their miserable existence and call it juice. These people will be climbin’ in your windows, snatchin’ that free pussy up, so ya’ll better hide your girls, hide your sin-caves and hide your emotions cause they monetarily rapin’ er’body up in here.
Common phrases include, but are not limited to:
“I’m just asking because OTHER models do it for this price.”
“If you showed more for free, then more people would tip in”
“But I’ve given you so much money already!”
(Side note: If you didn’t read that in an obnoxiously whiny voice, take it back one time and try again)
If you haven’t already figured it out, these people are idiots. They aren’t worth your time, and more often than not they are either trying to get you to lose your cool, or they are honestly ignorant enough to believe that you would show them something for free… and for what? Because they think they deserve it? Girl, please. You control your room and if you give away the goose, you give away the gander. (The goose being YOU and the gander in this case being the control)
Let’s face it. This is a job that comes with the vulnerability of exposing parts of yourself that most people would never dream of exposing, let alone have the courage to show even their closest of friends. There is a risk involved, there is the knowledge that everything you do while the cam is turned on has the possibility of being posted on the internet ANYWHERE and being seen by literally ANYONE. (If you don’t think this is the case, you are severely naive, and I recommend you research some more about what career choice you’re making before deciding on anything.)
Taking all of these things into consideration, I think we can all agree that we have the right, NAY, the duty to charge for any and all of the services and products that we provide.
Including the pleasure of our sparkling personalities. 🙂
I’ll leave you with this. Ultimately, the decision whether to give away teases and freebies is up to you. It’s your world and we’re all just living in it. All I’m preaching here is that you should never let anyone devalue you as not only a product, but also as a model.
…and hey, I’m not saying to stand up and say to the world “I have the Pussy, so I make the rules. Pay to play or get the F*&$ out”
…but I’m also not NOT saying that.
